Sorry for your trouble but your ‘smell test’ doesn’t relate to this. You guys see a headline and jump right in on her side. Hell, who files a lawsuit against a guy who JUST launched his book? Plus Gates was Bush. Fine, Identify the guy who raped you, identify the guys who molested you and have them arrested. Press a criminal suit, not a civil action. How about waiting to see further proof?

I see that you didn’t read the article, about evidence being suppressed or “lost”, and the chain of command regarding such allegations. When it comes to “proof” or evidence, an enlisted person just can’t go out and call the LEO’s to start investigating on a military base when they have been raped.

As for Rumsfeld’s book tour or the reasoning of the law suit, it was probably her lawyer’s idea to time it this way, and I can’t say I blame him. I don’t think the suit will succeed in troubling Rumsfeld or Gates; but I do think it will shed light in an area that very much needs airing out, especially with the military playground for gays and lesbians all set to open up.

By the way, I have always been against the idea of women serving alongside men in the army, firefighters, police and/or the clergy. This is only one of the reasons.
